Behind Bhutto's rather serious demeanor (described in the previous chapter), she has a much more frivolous, inquisitive and open side. The self-discipline and self-control mentioned earlier help to balance some of the restlessness and flightiness described below. Benazir has both a strong "adult" component in her nature (mature, careful, realistic), and a strong "child" component (mischievous, playful, fanciful).
Benazir Bhutto is, in many ways, an eternal child. Her mind is bright, alert, curious, flexible, playful and always eager for new experiences - and her attention span is often quite brief. Bhutto grasps ideas quickly and once her initial curiosity has been satisfied, she is ready to move on. Benazir Bhutto craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Benazir Bhutto to decide just where her talents and true vocation lie, for she has a multitude of interests and is loathe limiting herself by concentrating on just one. She is easily distracted by all of the other fascinating possibilities. Her curiosity and restlessness propel Benazir toward many different experiences in life, and she is willing to taste or try anything once. Doing the same thing over and over again, even if it is something she does well, is tantamount to drudgery for Bhutto.
Benazir Bhutto lives in her head a great deal - reading, observing, thinking, spinning ideas around - and she needs mental stimulation every bit as much as she needs food and drink. In fact, if Benazir had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, she would very likely choose the former. Benazir Bhutto has a creative mind and she often lives by her wits.
She is also a very social creature, with a strong need to communicate and interact with people. She enjoys using and playing with words and has a real flair for getting her ideas across in a clever, interesting, articulate manner. Writing and/or speaking are areas she has talent for.
Benazir Bhutto also has a rather lighthearted and mischievous sense of humor, and often does not take anything too seriously. Though she craves emotional involvement, it is hard for Benazir Bhutto to achieve it, for she is frequently unwilling to commit herself to anything, to take responsibility or to limit her personal freedom and mobility.
Her happiness lies in using her creativity and language skills to communicate something meaningful, teach, inspire, or bring people together. Benazir has an unbiased mind and can usually offer a fresh, clear, uncluttered perspective. Her faults are her lack of constancy and persistence, and her tendency to overlook or ignore deep emotional issues and other people's feelings.
Her energies are directed toward either honing her professional techniques, skills and abilities or "perfecting", refining, and improving herself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. Benazir Bhutto is highly motivated to strive for a state of wholeness or optimal functioning and she is quite a perfectionist!
Bhutto can easily become overly identified or involved with the task she performs, with her work, or with her own health and "growth process".
She is assertive, energetic, active, courageous and vital. Benazir Bhutto has a very strong physical drive that expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. Benazir Bhutto has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
Her comprehension is exceptional and Benazir Bhutto reacts to everything very quickly. Bhutto shows deep respect for knowledge and feels that she must learn everything there is to know. Studying probably was encouraged early on and Benazir Bhutto was raised to be successful.
